Jim: “Four years ago, I was just a guy who had a crush on a girl who had a boyfriend. And I had to do the hardest thing I ever had to do, which was just to wait. Don’t get me wrong—I flirted with her. Pam, I can now admit in front of friends and family that I do know how to make a photocopy. I didn’t need your help that many times. And do you remember how long it took you to teach me to drive stick?”
Pam: “Like a year.”
Jim: “I’ve been driving stick since high school. For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife.”
— So this morning, we are having breakfast together, and I looked up from my cereal and I said: you know what I wanna do today? I wanna marry you.
— I had just woken up. I didn’t look cute. That’s how I know he meant it.
Love suffers long, and is kind. It is not proud. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. Love never fails. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these islove.
JK: This was actually the first time, Jenna, that we had to get into sort of a fight. Like our two characters actually get mad at each other. And I remember you were so upset about it.
JF: I really was.
JF: I remember after we shot this, because this was our first little tiff, I came up to you afterwards and said, “Um, John? Will you please give me a hug so I know that you, as John Krasinski, are not mad at me today?” And he said, “Yes.”
JK: I said, “Sure.”
JF: And then we made up.
JK: Made out?
JF: Made up!
JK: Made up! Right, right, right…
JF: That’s a different episode, John.
